Sailing Off the safe Harbor

That’s all about: A Cap Jib: in the brisk,” Avoir le vent-en-poupe”,
in French
_a jib set on a stay to a bowsprit cap, astern._Dictionaries

Sail
I am thirsty for words
At the sole thought of writing I cuiver
When I put my pen to paper, I chiver
Off the safe harbor I leave
For when I put pen to paper,
It’s like riding a wave
Standing on a deck onboard holding a sail,
Facing the offing It’s not so facile

saddling the wind
All the frigates, all the boats,
And all the yachts

The goelands, and the seagulls, in my thoughts.
The Islands, and the seven seas,

the seashore
The gulf I need to drop my anchor
All the words I need to write,
Under the sheltering skies
The parade of the stars over my head
When I write, it’s when I’m lonely
The ocean is my deck in the open,
Sailing I am, writing is my way
With words painting them often
So, Sailing I am, off the safe harbor

Have you ever felt the brisk on you face,
the sun burning your skin,
the specks of sea-salt in your hair.
And its taste on your cracked lips;
Off the Grand Large,
the offing is bleeding,
It’s saying it low
can’t you hear it?
I’m calling you.
At a distance, a boat,
Had blown her toot.
Sailing is in the air
The ocean crushing at your feet,
standing still on the seashore
His ebb and flow,
Has skimmed his batter
in begging you.
can’t you see it!
What’s the matter with you?
what are you waiting for anyway 

If a chance was given to me, I’ll  sail away
How much I loved I have been a skipper,
You may say that I am a dreamer
Better than that, I want no more
From sailing away I won’t refrain
I thrill at thought of sailing again
I am not the only one 

“So throw off the bowlines, and Sail away from the safe harbor.” _Mark Twain
